Thank you for serving our country, while other kids only learned how to play football, and are now working drive thru!

Wow, I was homeschooled as a child, never played sports in my entire life, and yet I managed to get two college degrees, a trade school under my belt, and raise my children without too much of the outside negative influences of drugs, alcohol, and the so called community interference. And I believe when these so called "do-gooders" reach out with a helping hand, they usually have a sword in the other one. I am proud to take the only credit due for MY achievements. The proof is in the pudding, go watch your child play football at one of those "good schools" getting everything handed to him. Wow, he will learn a lot of life skills from that experience. My children will earn their achievements. And by the sound of your call name "who cares" it sounds like your child will be on the fast track to nowhereville really soon. And BTW, this is a public forum and people usually make comments that express their own opinions and beliefs about a given subject. If you dont like mine, shut off your computer!

Which is exactly my point, someone with and education and knowledge finally stood up and said enough is enough, do your job right, or get out and let someone else do it. Ya know teacher accountability, pay raises depend on scores, and not because some teacher or administrator decided to lead a not so fine example by filling in the bubbles on the MAP test, and CHEATING TO GET MORE $$$$$. No, most parents arent threatened by the alphabet soup behind the names, they are more worried about their child learning the three basic r's. Stop treating parents as if they are stupid, because the teachers I have dealt with have treated me like a piece of slime, and ASSUME that I am uneducated, because I dont agree with their methods. Just because I choose to purchase my children's clothing off the clearance rack, does not make me white trash. My money goes into savings, while everyone else at the school is trying to keep up with Mr and Mrs Jones. A majority of people happen to work nights, and so therefore, dont have the time for PTA nonsense, charity donations, fundraisers, family fun night, or any of that, The time I give to my children, is OURS, so WE decide what we do, when we do it, and where. Get over yourself, because you can be replaced, when your scores get too low.

Well I guess that's part of the reason why we have a bunch of stupid people running around trying to "feel good" about themselves, because Lord knows they dont have anything else to do that's productive. What parent thinks that is demeaning to recite their multiplication tables and learn to do long division, probably is the same parent who is so so proud of little Johnny and little Suzie for getting promoted at work in the newly appointed job class of french fry salter or drive thru cashier, who cant count change back to a dollar. And are you really that naive to think that the teacher''s agenda is to complete a self esteem exercise? PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The videos are babysitters, while the teachers have yet another PTA/PTO sponsered carry-in, located in the lounge! NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND MY BEHIND!

Respect is not automatic, it is earned, and should be displayed by both sides! One of the most important lessons in life is that you should and must question authority, because you never really truly know the person it has been given to! That is why we are still a democracy. And with so many of our authority figures getting caught with their pants down to their ankles, some of them involving the children they were entrusted to care for, NO I dont automatically side with the adults. Besides, everytime I ask my child what he did at school, he responds with "we watched a movie, ate popcorn in the hall, or had Beach Day in the Gymnasium. Respect for the learning environment??????? What learning environment???? And given the fact that the monthly newsletters are asking for regular donations for these "activities" is pretty much proof in the pudding of what our children do on a daily basis. And people wonder why MAP scores are down, schools are losing funding, and the economy is bad. When I was in third grade, I was sitting in a classroom with about 30-35 other students my age, repeatedly reciting the multiplication tables, and practicing long division. Wow, I just showed my age! LOL BTW, I have multiple college degrees, and I think most of my child's teachers are threatned by that.

And how much damage did he do while released on parole, or between court hearings? And how much money did this pursuit cost taxpayers, Helicopters are not cheap, and I can only imagine the costs of aviation fuel. Wow, what if they had just let him rot in prison to begin with? And the sheriff's dept gave up because he kicked up a dust storm on a county gravel road???????? LMAO!!!!!!!

Same thing for the child in Florida with severe peanut allergy; her diagnosed condition has an adverse effect (she could die) and the school is required to take every step to ensure that her free public education is available to her, accomadate her disability, and provide special services, such as providing a peanut free environment, alternative meals, and trained staff to deal with her condition. And if something happened to that child while in under their care and supervision, then they would be held liable, if they didnt do everything outlined in the laws that protect all of our children.

Again, the school doesnt diagnose, the doctor does this. The school assesses whether or not the child's diagnosed condition has an "adverse effect" on his/her learning, and determine eligibility for special services. And the schools are therefore REQUIRED to accomadate the disability under law. If they didnt determine his eligibility for special services once the DOCTOR made the diagnosis, then they are liable! Get it straight people before you make uninformed judgements.
